upstate new york taking the seat on medicare platform basically. and it looks like that was going to be the winning argument, to simply to say that the republicans we will end the medicare guaranteed, but now that does not seem sufficiently potent to get them the majority. >> i want to take the moderator at the texas book festival prerogative and ask you about one particular texas congressman who you write about in this book. one of those freshmen elected 2010 from corpus christi. a very instead to die. if you pay attention to the congressional delegation he certainly is more interesting and more fun to write about and more fun to cover the others. why did you pick on them? and why did you take him to write about? and would you talk about him for this group? >> many of you are texans know the name, but noted in a different context. his grandmother is a liberal icon. did not give his politics from his grandmother. an entrepreneur, and somewhat of an accidental congressman. he ran in 2010 as the texas congressional district that includes corpus christi, and at the time it included rums

. how many investigators do you have for all the ripping off the medicare and medicaid by the health industry? how many do you have in the anti-trust division to stop price fixing or other collusive behavior #* -- behavior? last i heard in the justice department, there's over a hundred lawyers. corporate pollution violating laws, corporate crime, silent form of deadly violence. one of the solutions here is not just more disclosure, automatically disclose this information by corporations, not just more subpoena power by regulatory agencies, but more end forcement. the way the corporations get off the hook is they did to congress, and they make sure that the law enforcement budgets are trivial so there are fewer federal cops on the corporate crime, fraud, and abuse beat. create national chapterrers for national corporations. that one was proposed over a hundred years ago by president roosevelt and president william howard taft. just go backwards into the future. right now, these giant corporations are created by state charter. investors do not create corporations, but they finance them

costing too much, you don't say well we have to give up on medicare because it's costing too much. you find the money because it's a duty. but there will also be people on left to say look, this is a high-risk strategy. we could lose everything. why don't we take half a loaf or a little more and compromise, change the terms and there have been some efforts already made in the 80's and along these moderate lines. but i think because of the enormity of the coming problem, the coming gap in funding versus promises made, it can be finessed as easily as as set as social securitywise in the 1980s. so i think they will have a tremendous fight among themselves and it will be interesting to see what conservatives say in their circumstances themselves. because we too, i mean when alexander hamilton wrote about the public credit he made it explicit. there too many to the term. one is can we borrow from other countries or other people and secondly, are our promises good? will they accept their promise to pay them back and will we use the money for the purposes we borrowed it for and wisely adminis
